Welcome to the Youth Ministries of Living the Word Church!!
We are thrilled you’ve taken a moment to see what we have to offer your teens.
Here at Living the Word Church, we don’t believe youth are the future of the church; they ARE the church. As a vital part of our church, we recognize that each generation has its own unique way of relating to one another and the current culture.
Through these relationships and cultures, we seek to make Jesus Christ known. We strive to make this happen through a variety of different avenues: Middle and High School Sunday School meet on Sunday morning; Small Groups throughout the week; Retreats and Mission Projects.
UPCOMING YOUTH EVENTS!
This summer, we will dive into relationships with our church family, our youth members, and our Heavenly Father.
During these summer months, our youth will continue to dive into a relationship with God as they meet for their 8:30 am Sunday School class. We will enjoy breakfast and bible study during this hour led by our Associate Pastor, Tim Gauci. At 9:30 am, the youth will move their talents down to the main lobby to dive into a deeper relationship with and serve the Church. There they will learn the various “greeting” tasks performed by a healthy church and practice serving in this capacity. Be sure to encourage our youth in these roles and feel free to step in alongside them and serve.
Once a month, we will have a Youth Serving Sunday during the 8:30 am service in place of our Breakfast & Bible Study. During this time, our youth will be shadowing service jobs like running the soundboard, operating the PowerPoint, and ushering with an adult leader in our church. There are many ways to serve in our church. Let’s all work to give God glory. We are scheduled up for the 3rd Sunday of each month throughout the summer.
Monday Dive & Dives
Beginning June 21, the youth will meet in the side parking lot of the church at 3:45 pm and travel together to the pools of one of our church member families. There the youth will dive into the pool, dive into the Word, dive into some food, and into a deeper relationship with our church family and our Lord. We will return to the church by 6:15 pm for parent pickup. If you are interested in hosting one of our summer swims, and we haven’t chatted, feel free to call the church office to see about adding your stop to our schedule.
Dive & Dive events will take place every Monday rain or shine. If the weather is not permitting a swim, the youth will move their event into the church for games, grub, and bible study with their friends.
